Monthly Data Acquisition
Under the Old System
The new system has given the utility options to pick from as an additional effort to notify the public:
Do you remember last year the problems you had with completing your CCR and being sure that you had it
printed and mailed before the July 1st deadline not to mention the costs involved?
Recent changes allowed by EPA and initiated by Congress through action and leadership of Florida Congressman Bill Young and many of the Florida Congressional delegation allow electronic delivery of the Water Quality Reports to customers.
It is estimated each Florida Water Utility will save $1 per customer per year through this electronic delivery opportunity and Florida led effort by the Florida Congressional Delegation leadership.
The likely and most popular way for water utilities to comply with the new EPA rules and
deliver these reports in the future will be to place a statement and a direct URL link on each water bill letting customers know where they can view, review and print a copy of their CCR report from.
You must also place an opt out check box on the bill where the customer can check, return and request a mailed copy form the water utility. In other words, where they can opt out of electronic delivery and opt back into mailed delivery.
It is our suggestion you place your CCR on your own website and put the direct URL link from your website on the customer bill. For example: www.JEA.com/2012ccr.
If you don’t currently have a website now would be a great time to develop one for this CCR posting, other promotional/public relation and communication benefits.
If you would like to start your own website you may contact RuralWaterImpact.com and they will assist you with developing a website for a $150.00 setup fee and $30.00 per month afterwards.
If you don’t have or want a website the Florida Rural Water Association would host your CCR for a nominal fee each year. This service is available to all Active, Parent, and Sub members of FRWA.
The fee must be paid before you CCR will be posted online. The fee is based on the size of your utility by the guidelines below:
